The Brighton Brunswick Cricket Club, when formed in 1870, was
for good cricketers, wishing to play mid-week who had strong associations with
the then newly formed County Club – in fact the County initially played on the
Brunswick ground in Fourth Avenue, Hove in the early years before moving to the
current County Ground in Eaton Road and the Brunswick were a “nursery” for the
County who had no second eleven.
Much has changed since those days. Not least being our status. Although we still have strong associations with the County and indeed enjoy at least one game there, we are essentially a wandering side, playing our fixtures against many Premier League clubs as well as some delightful village sides.
We provide mid-week cricket of a good standard for club players with talent and good humour. In our recent past we have had players from the Premier League, from overseas, village cricketers and even players who have gone on to represent their country. All have enjoyed the humour, banter and camaraderie that epitomise The Brighton Brunswick.
Apart from our regular fixtures, we also have a hugely successful Devon Tour about the first week of July which attracts cricketers, golfers and spectators of varying ages and talents. The Tour has been based in Torquay since 1932. Additionally we have an Annual Dinner in April which is invariably a full house!
The new, improved and wider Club ties are available
at £10 plus £2 postage and packing.
If you would like to purchase a Club tie please contact Bob Sansom, Dunster, 47 Greenways, Haywards Heath, West Sussex, RH16 2DT

Club Rule 7 states:
7. The General Committee
The management of the Club shall be vested in the General Committee, which
may delegate whatever functions it considers are appropriate, to one or more of the Officers of the Club, or to a sub-committee, to ensure the effective dapy-to-day running of the Club. The General Committee shall meet at least twice per year. All nominations for Officers and new Vice Presidents must be considered in advance of the Annual General Meeting, by the General Committee, which will make formal recommendations to the Annual General Meeting. Any member wishing to make a nomination shall give the Hon. Secretary notice in writing of such nomination 14 days prior to the A.G.M.
I appreciate that if you wish to nominate for consideration by the General Committee, Officers or new Vice President/s it states the nomination should be made 14 days prior to the AGM. However, it would help enormously if you would please advise me, in my capacity as Hon. Secretary, in writing, of your nominees by no later than the 15 December 2016.
